She’s usually right. But always wrong.
When freshman year at the University of Alabama draws to a close, Sara Donovan finds herself grappling with the same old question—listen to her head or follow her heart. What she ends up doing is purchasing an Egyptian funeral mask, and after a mysterious phone call, she’s certain there are antiquities smugglers operating in Tuscaloosa.
With finals never far from her mind and her return to ‘Bama hanging in the balance, she should be studying. Instead she launches her own investigation to prove her mask is indeed a stolen artifact, and not a cheap trinket. When it comes time to snoop, Sara is more than ready, or at least she was until a hot new teaching assistant moves in next door.
Suddenly she learns things are never as they seem. Ever.
Readers who enjoy laugh-out-loud moments and the winning combination of a clumsy but effective amateur investigator who stumbles into unfamiliar territory will find Against My Better Judgment wonderfully entertaining, refreshingly different, and just the ticket for a lively read.D.

I loved Sara’s snark and wit. She was quite fun to read about. She gets herself into a bit of a mess and it was an entertaining one, to say the least. She has such a great voice to lead the story.
I loved the backdrop and setting, I think the author does a great job of highlighting those elements.
Danger and mystery ensue throughout and I think it was a wonderful case and kept me guessing.

When I picked up this book, I was looking for something that was laugh-out-loud fun, and B.T. Polcari delivered. The characters are hilarious.
I had an amazing time getting to know Sara and the others we meet along the way.
The setting so lively and interesting. The plot twists were an adventure that I never wanted to end.
In my head these characters are still living on and causing mischief.
From the very first page, this book had me hooked and causing mischief.

This was so much fun! Such a great cozy mystery, filled with snark, sarcasm and quick wit. The mystery was great and kept me guessing until the very end. I look forward to reading future books in this series!
Sara is a college student whose life fulfills the ‘if it can go wrong, it will’ mantra every chance it gets. She handles these situations with a great sense of humor and acceptance. As a klutz, I can relate to some of the catastrophes she finds herself in.
